The Arctic & Arctic Frost Wine Glass Collection is definitely something you wonít see anywhere else. The decanter does not feature a usual base; the base has an ice look to it. The Arctic is clear throughout and the Arctic Frost is left unpolished, creating a ìfrostedî look. * Keep in mind that fine glassware is NOT dishwasher safe. Over time, washing these products in the dishwasher could cause dramatic loss of color in the luster, along with a fading of the 24k gold accents (where applicable). click on "Your Wine Experience" for more detail on how to care for your glassware.
